Castillo is and was a great businessman, a generous person, and very humble and happy. I will remember or laughter every time we would talk and run into each other, it was like we took up where we left off. I meet Mr. Castillo about 28 years ago, when i worked as a conveince store clerk in his neighborhood. We became good friends, I remember him coming in the store daily, and a lot of times with his two young sons. Always making us laugh. I lost touch with him for about 18 years, and then ran into him again, like if I had just seen him yesterday. He was always smiling, and laughing. I was fortunate enough to speak to him on the day he was going into surgery. I told him everything would be alright and that i was praying for him, his reply was, I am ready. I have lived a good life, let it be what it will be. I told him you cant go anywhere, you still have to give us the estimate on leveling our house, plus what about COCO? That is his cow. LOL I will always remember my dear friend.
